Producer Note
Blackbook Winery is an urban winery located in a railway arch in Battersea, South
London. Their philosophy is simple: blending tradition with innovation. The grapes are
sourced from carefully selected growers, who have vineyards within hours of the city
and high quality grapes. Blackbook endeavours to bring the hard work of the vineyard
owners to the forefront, by creating a range of single vineyard wines that showcase the
quality and potential of producing world-class still wine in England. Focussing on
Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, Blackbook uses a minimalist approach, with low to zero
sulphur and natural yeasts, as they seek to reflect the vibrancy, culture and energy of
London in their wines.
Vintage
A warmer and drier-than-average spring led to an early budburst. Frost damage in midMay was significant in some vineyards. Flowering took place under good conditions,
followed by a warm August which brought ripening on quickly. The harvest was one of
the earliest of modern times with reduced yields, but exceptionally high natural sugar
levels. The wines are of excellent quality.
Vineyard
The vines for this wine are grown in the single vineyard of ‘Coombe Bottom Vineyard’ in
the rolling hills of Horsham in East Sussex. Planted in 2016, the two-hectare site faces
southeast, on a gentle slope, maximising exposure to the sun. The soils are made up of
green sandy loam, a free draining soil. The vineyard is managed conventionally with
hand-harvesting and careful grape sorting in the vineyard, once the fruit has reached
optimal maturity.
Winemaking
A limited edition wine, made from the three varieties that are traditionally used in
Champagne production: 2019 Chardonnay, 2019 Pinot Noir and 2020 Pinot Meunier.
Each variety was vinified separately; the hand-picked grapes were whole bunch
pressed into a combination of stainless steel tanks, an egg-shaped fermenter and
Burgundy barrels (of which 5% were new) for fermentation and maturation. The egg
shape suspends the natural lees, resulting in a textured wine. The musts underwent
alcoholic fermentation and malolactic conversion with wild yeasts and underwent
frequent lees stirring, imparting complexity. The wine spent between six to 18 months
maturing in either French Burgundy barrels, an egg shaped vessel, or stainless steel
tanks, before being bottled without fining or filtration.
Tasting Note
The Mix-Up Volume III is an aromatic wine with red fruit notes of raspberries and
strawberries complemented by ripe stone fruit and zesty lemon. Refreshing and
textured, with an uplifting and crisp finish.
